Preparing to Teach Hybrid or Online
UW Bothell IT recommends taking these basic steps as part of creating your instructional continuity plan:
Tell your students how you plan to communicate with them and how they can contact you in the event of a campus closure (e.g., email or through Canvas).
Make sure your syllabus is available through Canvas.
Determine how you will share content in the event of a campus closure. We recommend posting content (readings, links, videos) in the Canvas LMS.
Determine if and how your students will engage in discussion (e.g., Canvas discussion board, Google doc, email, Zoom).
Communicate if and how you will honor your office hours (e.g., email, phone, Zoom).
Determine how you will collect, assess, and grade student work (e.g., quizzes/tests in Canvas, assignment submissions in Canvas or by email).
Identify, setup, and test your technology tools to conduct class online.
